A new study about to be released by the World Health Organization (WHO)[i] proves that two current smears against Israel are totally false.
They found that adolescents in Israel are the 3rd happiest in the world. According to the findings of the “Happiness Index,” Israeli teens are happier than the vast majority of teens in the world. The percentage of happy teens in Israel is outranked only by Armenia and Macedonia. Israel is tied in third place with Holland, Iceland and Spain.
The study that was conducted among almost 5,000 teens in the 6th, 8th and 10th grades also found that female teens tend to be happier than male teens 51% to 47%. It further showed that Israeli Arab youths were happier than Jewish youths by 55% to 47%.
First, this study by non-Jewish, non-Israeli polltakers puts to rest the myth that life in America is better for Jewish children than in Israel. The children here are healthier and happier than the Jewish children in America.
This study also shatters the Arab and left wing’s vicious political lies regarding the treatment of Arabs in Israel. They scream that Israeli Arabs are treated even worse than the Jews were treated by the Germans during the Second World War, yet the Arab teens here are among the happiest in the world. This lie is firmly believed not only throughout the Arab and Muslim world, but by all anti-Semitic populations, especially on college campuses where they are happy to grab onto any vicious lie they hear, as long as it is against Jews.
Know how to answer their false claims.
